Description

flatbeh synthetize a VHDL behavioral data-flow description from a structural description. It flattens the structural description (it can be a hierarchy of macro block) until the cells which have a behavioral description. Then it raise all the equations and create a behavioral description of the root file.

Parameters

root_structural_file is the filename of the root of the structural description file.

output_file is the destination filename for behavioural description.

Environment Variables

MBK_CATA_LIB
list of directories containing descriptions. The default path is the current directory (see mbk(1)).
MBK_CATAL_NAME
Indicates the file where the behavioral description files are given. This serves to flatbeh to stop the flatten of the structural root circuit.(see mbk(1))
MBK_IN_LO
file extension for structural entity. (see mbk(1))

Example

flatbeh adder_32
